  1. There's no DH in 2021 correct? I'm not sure where he would go on this team.
  2. If the team is contention and he's producing in the minors, he could be a great addition, if on the other hand the team isn't in contention I'd prefer they wait and keep his service time down so they don't have to start the arbitration clock. Either way he'll be in The Show for good come 2022
  3. Queenville has the team going in the right direction, they should make the playoffs in this years division which is kinda weak other than Tampa Bay, not sure how they'd be doing if they were playing Boston and Toronto on the regular instead of Detroit and Chicago
  4. That's just part of the business of the game, hopefully he gets a shot somewhere else
  5. The Bucs are the closest team to my location but one of the furthest from heart, I'm old enough to remember when the Dolphins were the only NFL team in Florida and I haven't changed my allegiance despite a lot of lean years, plus as Phins fan F*@k Tom Brady
  6. If Colorado doesn't get third base prospect Nolan Gorman they're screwing the pooch on this deal
  7. I'm sure he'll thank the Marlins for giving him an opportunity in his Hall of Fame acceptance speech
  8. I believe Trevor Bauer has also alleged this about Cole his former college teammate and apparently there's a huge grudge between the two, an interesting insight though on how this is done
  9. I always liked Baker's work ethic, saw him in a Spring Training game hit a routine pop up in the infield and he hauls ass down to first heading to second when the ball just drops in and he's standing there with a double! Seems like he has a good head for the game so I hope he succeeds there.
  10. Fish bringing in veteran back stop Sandy Leon on a minor league deal with invite to spring training https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/01/marlins-sign-sandy-leon-to-minors-contract.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook
  11. Tarpley has been DFA'ed to make space on the roster
  12. Bender celebrating the Marlins World Series Championship
  13. That sucks the Florida State League will be low A, going to miss seeing better prospects locally
  14. My first memory of Tommy was in my set of 1977 Topps, he was for sure a baseball lifer
  15. At this point I'm probably going to have get games from whomever is broadcasting them through MLB, as of now with Sinclair making it impossible to get the games through streaming services
  16. This is awesome for a farm fan like myself, I usually would get to games in GCL, FSL and Jax so I can now make a long drive to Pensacola too!!! Now if they'll just let us in to go to games
  17. I can't recall a manager in the Hall of Fame coming out of retirement to manage again. Obviously he has credentials for the job, maybe he'll hire McKeon for the staff
  18. Tommy Phelps is one of the nicest guys I've ever met , glad to have him back in the organization!
  19. This one hurts for sure, I'm one of those old folks that remember Joe as a player, a back to back MVP and the catalyst for the Big Red Machine as much as Rose or Bench, he was a joy to watch with his little arm flap at the plate and blazing speed on the base paths. It's startling to see so many great players dying as such an alarming rate recently especially these guys I watched as a kid.
  20. I've been to minor league games where it was done and now have seen it in the majors and I get the reasoning behind it to save arms, but I hate it. I also feel bad for the pitcher that comes in and gets a loss in that situation
  21. I had Brighthouse for phone/cable/internet, after company changes so I'm still left with the shitty Spectrum for internet but got Hulu live with it I get Fox Sports Florida and Fox Sports Sun so I get Marlins, Rays, Lightning and Magic, every now and then a Heat game, pretty sure this is because I live in central FL, but also includes multiple ESPN feeds FS1 and NBC sports along with the major networks so there are few sporting events I miss, my bill went down drastically
  22. He has to go through waivers first before he returns to the Nats, so any team is eligible to make a claim they're also on the hook for the waiver and Rule 5 fee, if unclaimed he can then return to Washington or every now and then the teams work out trades as the original team has moved on
